The Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the largest Muslim rights organisation in the United States, has described the revelation that Muslim gatherings and homes around Washington have been electronically "sniffed" for radiation as "disturbing."
In a statement on Friday, CAIR said, "This disturbing revelation, coupled with recent reports of domestic surveillance without warrant, could lead to the perception that we are no longer a nation ruled by law, but instead one in which fear trumps constitutional rights. All Americans should be concerned about the apparent trend toward a two-tiered system of justice system, with full rights for most citizens, and another diminished set of rights for Muslims."
This is racial profiling. Orwellian too. Not to mention being idiotic. Like anyone who had radioactive devices would be dumb enough to store them at home. Like there couldn’t be vastly more intelligent ways to look for possible threats.
This seems absurd until you realize such surveillance demonstrates that our government is out of control. It’s time for regime change in DC.
